The Obama administration just announced the rejection of the controversial $7 billion Keystone Pipeline.
Juliet Eilperin of The Washington Post, first broke the news that the State Department, which led the review of the project, would reject a permit for the pipeline.
The rejection is expected to come from the State Department which has led the review of the project. Transcanada will however be able to reapply with an alternate route going through Nebraska.
President Obama had initially delayed the decision till after the 2012 Presidential election. Congress however mandated that there be a decision on the pipeline by February 21, as part of the negotiations on the payroll tax cut extension.
Two phases of the Keystone Pipeline are already complete. It is the 1,661 mile Keystone Gulf coast expansion project that is under review.
